Publisher's Summary

Once again, the Sophia Island Shrimp Festival is over. Thousands attended to eat shrimp, shop, and watch the pirates come ashore as usual, but this year’s temperatures were warmer than ever. Everyone is happy that the busy hot weekend is over, and everyone came through unscathed. Or so it seems. 

Jewel and Craig Mantelle also made it through their kids and families’ first visit to their new island home. But it didn’t go nearly as smooth as the Shrimp Festival. Craig is now back in South Florida on his job, and Jewel is sweating it out in the old house without air conditioning. One bright spot is her weekly lunch with her new friends. When they aren’t searching out details of her families’ visit and her disintegrating marriage, they are discussing the death of one of the Shrimp Festival board members. A natural death everyone believes until her novelist son comes to town, and starts talking as if one of his thrillers has come to life. 

He says his mother embezzled money from the festival, and a man is involved. But that’s not the craziest thing he’s got on his mind. 

He’s chosen the setting for his next book, and its Jewel’s house! 

So of course - he’s moving in.

My Favorite so far!!

Kay Dew Shostack is so talented! I've read all but the last book of her Chancey series (I have it, though!) and LOVE them all!! The Shrimp Did It is the 3rd of the Southern Beach series. And my Favorite!! (So far!!) I love the ladies, young, younger and old. The way they band together and help through each crisis and come up with a plan of action. Annie is someone I can relate to, while Jewel (the main character) would definitely be someone I'd want as a friend.
I listened to the audiobook version of this and, once again, Suzanne Babetta knocks It out of the park!
I've heard there's a 3rd series, so I may have to check it out!
